THE AESTHETIC CHOICE:
Whether you’re at its bars on the Kings Road or in Mayfair and Shoreditch, the Townhouse is an Instagram-worthy experience. Aside from the aesthetically pleasing interiors, its high-quality expertise, reliable treatments and speciality nail art make it a fashion-girl favourite.
THE SPEEDY SESSION:
London Grace is a favourite for its Slap Dash mani – ideal for a quick lunchbreak treatment when you need an instant refresh. The chain also offers longer treatments, and the drinks menus and product range earn it extra points.
THE FUN PLACE:
Tired of neutral nails? Visit Shoreditch Nails to switch things up. The salon is a specialist in flattering vibrant shades and cool nail art, although you can always ask for the classics. There’s a range of vegan and cruelty-free products on offer, making it a go-to for creative looks and kind-to-the-planet formulas.
THE GIRLS-DAY-OUT SPOT:
Linnean is a luxury hair, beauty and lifestyle destination in the heart of Nine Elms’ Embassy Gardens. Its team of in-house experts use non-toxic, 90% natural gels and polishes which are vegan and cruelty free. Plus, you can pop in to get your hair done or have a massage before finishing up with a trip to the on-site plant-led restaurant.
THE PRE-PARTY TREAT:
Duck & Dry Mayfair
If you’re in the mood to treat yourself to a deluxe mani or pedi, Duck & Dry makes for a great pre-party pit stop. Alternatively, buy a bundle to enjoy regular BIAB or gel appointments and maintain your nails all year-round.
THE ONE-STOP SHOP:
DryBy is a great place for a relaxing Saturday pamper session. Choose from a vast range of nail shades, supplied by the likes of CND and Nailberry, and try out one of the salon’s famous reverse French manis. We’d recommend finding a bit of inspiration via its well-curated Instagram page before you go.
